13 people were killed and 31 more were injured when a tour bus crashed into a freight truck on Sunday in Palm Springs.

According to CBS LA, photos showed the front of bus smashed into the trailer of the semi-truck on Interstate 10 in Desert Hot Springs, near Palm Springs. Multiple tow trucks were brought in to pull the vehicles apart.

“There are approximately 31 passengers on the bus that were transported with minor to serious injuries,” said California Highway Patrol Officer Stephanie Hamilton.

The cause of the crash is still unknown. The CHP says all westbound lanes of the highway are closed and is set to re-open at 4pm today.
